Simulacrum was an experimental video chat performance exploring the idea of anonymity and social interaction. Random people on the street and on the internet could chat with each other. The people on the internet could see those on the street and myself, while those on the street could only see my video feed and chat dialog. It was a nightly performance for four consecutive weeks. Regular participants on the internet formed into a group over time and developed inside vocabulary and jokes. Those on the street formed more passive viewership in groups. The average interaction time for people on the street was four and a half minutes.
